now-imprisoned man. now it is giannoulias again trying to distance himself from rezko's reputation. >> let's be clear of what i've said from day one. '05 left daily operations '06 i left the bank. there are no inconsistentcies. >> reporter: but others seem to think so. this morning in new york. >> did you take a tax break you didn't deserve? >> no. i got a refund because of the loss of a family business. and i said that with that money i would give it back to charity. >> we don't -- we haven't dug down deep in the issue. it seems to me the bottom line the tribune is asking is did you work at the bank in 2006 or not. >> and the answer -- i've been consistent from the very beginning is yes. >> reporter: the talk started that he did work at his family bank in 2006.
contradiction to some. >> there was a controversial loan in 2006. and said i didn't know anything about. we don't say he does know about it but he was still working there. and the $2.7 million tax deduction allows him to prove that. >> reporter: he refutes that point. he says he disclosed the dates years ago. while giannoulias was still associated with his family's bank, broadway made a $22 million loan to tony rezko, a man later embroiled in federal investigations. he's in jail now and awaiting sentencing. giannoulias says his name isn't attached to loan documents and neither should his reputation be. >> are you telling me you had no influence on the tony rezko loan somewhat whatsoever? >> yes. >> even though he's a
multimillionaire, he wants his tax breaks so he doesn't have to pay federal tax. >> reporter: the hopeful says he never received addiction break because of his dealings at the bank. but noted in today's business paper refers to a business loss to broadway. not a tax break or refund for him. >> everyone who looks at the loan documents, i had nothing to do with the loan. but it's politics so people try to drum things up where there's no question whatsoever. >> reporter: he goes on to say that his opponent is down today by four points in the cnn poll. talk about bad loans and his family's bank is an effort to distract from issues he cares about. >> thank you. an acid attack. two juries and two verdicts. dan ponce has the latest tonight. >> reporter: a very emotional scene here at the criminal courts building just a short while ago. guilty verdicts across the board and a huge victory for the woman who was badly

families of the two women. >> i'm relaxed and happy. and i can go on with my life. i want to thank you guys very being here. my family, my mom, my kids. and states attorneys, great job they did. >> reporter: and after making those comments she added she no longer cares what people think when they see her face. she knows she's beautiful on the inside. she hopes to go back to her work as a social worker. as for the women found guilty, they are facing a minimum of six years in prison and a maximum of 45 years in prison. sentencing scheduled for november 1st and november 3rd. >> thanks a lot. guilty and headed to prison after providing a gun used to murder a depaul student. gave the gun to a fellow gang membership who was kicked out of a halloween party last year only to return and kill

million reduction for their clients. that's right. $163million in just one year. it's all perfectly legal, but it's the appearance that is raising questions. >> how does it look when a law firm like that can go in, give you money -- perfectly legal, i understand. but they can turn around the next day and walk in front of the board and ask you for a reduction? >> they're not asking me for a reduction on their behalf. they're asking me to look at a particular piece of -- >> joe. >> let me finish. they don't. they provide documents. half these attorneys never appear at the board to begin with. >> reporter: but back to the early morning fund raiser he is. the cash contributors left the party just hours before the cook county board passed ethics reform aimed right at joe barrios. now if he takes more than $1600 from any firm that comes to him for a tax break, he faces heavy

the lawyers and companies that contributed to borrios over the years. she thinks that's just wrong. >> if you want to do business with this office, if you want to bring in your appeals, then you have to remove yourself from the contribution process. i think the public deserves that kind of distance there. >> the law firm that hosted the barrios fund raiser says it follows the law for contributions and isn't concerned about how it looks to outsiders. it doesn't appear they did anything illegal. running for a tax appeals board who has to deal with a small group of attorneys whose life blood is getting property tax reduction. the timing of the chicago magazine article, they said they started investigating a year ago. still ahead: squareoff. the candidates go after it over the future of the state.

quade be the permanent coach. trailing in the third inning 1- 0 at petco tonight. at the white sox-red sox night, papi trying to bunt tonight. pretty good playing going on out there. 1st inning, first batter. scutaro robbed by quentin. omar vistal. red sox came unglued after that white sox win 5-2. by the way the total bill for the new spring training site in arizona coming out to $99 million. still on the ballot out there. some question if they will spend that money. finally how about the look at the blackhawk's spoils of victory player's name and team
on the side there. and the indian head logo. lot of diamonds on there. the other is the image of the stanley cup. as you can see, the parting gift was pretty special. >> very pretty. >> do d you get a new suit or hair cut? >> i don't know what you're talking about. >> you look a little different than normal. >> what? >> as geeky as he always looks to me. >> that was our news tonight. thanks for watching. >> i'm micah materre. >> this is what happens when you lose a bet. you might lose your job too. >> good night everybody. bonnie, turn up the volume. your baby sister has something to say. this intervention brought to you by niaspan. so now your doctor's talking about plaque building up in your arteries - she called it coronary artery disease. you think that's something you can just stick in an
email and that's the end of it? do you know me? look, bonnie. i know you've been exercising and eating a healthier diet. and that's great. but you wrote that your doctor also wants you on this cholesterol medicine - niaspan. i know - another pill. i get it, i do. but i am not taking no for an answer. if you have high cholesterol and coronary artery disease, and diet and exercise are not enough, niaspan, along with diet and a bile acid-binding resin, is fda-approved not only to slow down plaque buildup but to actually help clear some of it away. bonnie, ever since we were kids, you would do anything for me. i need you to do this for you. if you cannot afford your medication, call 1-877-niaspan. niaspan is not for everyone, like people with stomach ulcers, liver, or serious bleeding problems. severe liver damage can occur when switching to niaspan from immediate-release niacin. blood tests are needed to check for liver problems. tell your doctor if you have muscle pain or weakness; this could be a sign of serious side effects; this risk can increase with statin use. tell your doctor about alcohol use, if you've
ever had gout, or are diabetic and experience increases in blood sugar. flushing, a common side effect, is warmth, redness, itching, or tingling of the skin. ask your doctor about niaspan. fight back. fight plaque. niaspan. ÷ñpp ♪ [ sniffs ] bye! bye! ♪ hi. hey! hey! [ laughter ]
